Volunteer of the month: Maxim Quardon

FROM MERCH SALES TO TECHNICAL CREW

Maxime Quardon has been sound technician in Ampere since March 2016, when he was helping during We Play House. He came in touch with our venue for the first time as the merch guy for R&S Records.

A: What are your tasks as a technician in Ampere?

M: I prepare the booth according to the artist’s wishes, make sure everything is working perfectly, helping dj’s to set up if they have extra gear with them, do soundchecks, make sure they feel ok during the act. And of course, checking the volume levels, make some small adjustments throughout the night to maintain a nice sound dynamic. Once in a while I have to order gear we don’t have, do some maintainance and unbuild when the event is over.

A: What has been the most challenging task for you to carry out?

M: I’d say that the biggest challenge for me is to cope with artists’ requirements. Some are technically very concerned and very demanding when others are more adaptable. Sometimes it happens that an artist asks for a speficic kind of set up when the second artist playing right after him asks for something completely different.

A: You meet a lot of interesting artists. What has been your favourite encounter?
